Home alone

Today was my first day home alone with Henry. T finally went back to work. The day was uneventful -- not that much different than when T is here. Henry needed his regular feeding and changing. He was awake for a few hours today which is kind of new, but as he's doing this during the day, I encourage it. But eventually he gets tired, makes a tiny-huge yawn and I put him down. He's a pretty easy kid. He cries for a reason -- hunger or needed a new diaper. He doesn't really cry for no reason, which is nice.

I was even able to get some chores done. I put him in the bouncy seat on the floor in the kitchen while I washed dishes and filled the dishwasher. He got tired so I put him in his crib upstairs, safely away from the animals, and I was able to do some laundry.

Later in the day I walked the dog with Henry in the sling. I walked with my friend Jess yesterday with Henry in the stroller, but I kept hitting Bdog in the back of the legs. Bdog wouldn't poop while being so close to the stroller, so I do prefer the sling with the walk. I think with practice this will get easier.

Tomorrow we go to the pediatrician and my mom is going to come over.

I am tired, but things are good.

What a cutie! I'm sure you'll be fine by yourself. You can be your own boss! Well, I guess Henry dictates some things....

So cute!! Sounds wonderful. I think it takes a little bit for dogs to get used to strollers, I know Zoe will have a tough time with that one.

Sounds like a good day for a new mommy! Glad to hear everyone is adjusting (even BDog).

Good job! I'm impressed you made it out on a dog walk. Mastering the sling and dog walking was hard for me.
